Michael Hunter and Hughie Fury will meet in a World Boxing Association (WBA) heavyweight eliminator fight on September 29 at the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham, United Kingdom.

The American Hunter occupies the first place in the WBA ranking and will face the British fighter, who is third in the rankings. Both have the opportunity to fight for a world title in the near future and need the victory to achieve it.

Hunter has faced experienced opponents, including Oleksandr Usyk at cruiserweight during 2017. The 34-year-old American is coming off a draw in his most recent fight yet motivated to score a victory.

Fury, 27, has three wins in a row and has also faced veterans such as Kubrat Pulev and Alexander Povetkin, which has helped him gain experience and maturity in his boxing.

Hunter has 20 wins, 1 loss, 2 draws and 14 knockouts. Fury has 26 wins, 3 losses and 15 knockouts.
